-speaking of which, ha you heard about the latest medicare scam? this happened to my friend. a man came to her door claiming he was from medicare. he had a smooth line about helping seniors with the high costs of their medicines, but she had to give him her medicare number right then before the 'deadline'. well, when she got her medicare summary notice, it was full of charges for services she hadn't received! turns out the guy was a scam artist. -medicare already has everyone's number; they wouldn't need to ask for it. -scams like these hurt every taxpayer, draining billions from medicare and making it harder for people like us to get the health benefits we're entitled to. so, i did something about it. i joined the senior medicare patrol where i work with other volunteers to teach my neighbors how to protect their medicare numbers, review statements to spot false charges and detect errors, and report suspected fraud.

7:47 am
what's that? well, imagine a cough barreling through your infant's body at up to 100 miles per hour. with enough force to make him gasp for air. again and again. for weeks, even months. pertussis, or whooping cough, is potentially fatal. now imagine you gave this to your baby. parents most often spread pertussis. and even when babies themselves are vaccinated, they're probably not protected till they've had at least three doses. i'm working with march of dimes to urge you to help protect your baby by protecting yourself. ask your health-care provider about the adult pertussis vaccine. now. cause we can't stop pertussis fast enough.
